THE SOCK FACTORY
Founded in North Carolina over 40 years ago by Mike Banks, Sr. after his time in the military, The Sock Factory has been a leader in designing and manufacturing, premium quality socks. Mike, along with his two sons, has grown the company from one machine and a dream to an expert sock mill with over 50 employees operating over 60 knitting machines. With connections to some of the top yarn manufacturers in the world and apparel industry leaders, The Sock Factory has been an invaluable partnership in the creation of our sustainable, USA-made socks.
Founded in 2012 in the garment district of Los Angeles, California by business partners Jesse Dombrowiak and Zack Hurley, Indie Source has been crucial in the design and inception of our tee-shirts and women’s tie-back shirts. From initial design meetings to fittings and final production, Indie Source has helped lead us on our journey in providing premier shirt quality, sustainability, and durability to the Footy Intl Family.
